Junior Netball

Selection Trials

Selection trials are held for all junior teams. Details of selection criteria are detailed in the Barwon Heads Netball Club Selection Policy.

Selection trials for junior team are usually conducted in February each year. 

Players may elect to play out of their age group and can trial in both their age group and the one above. Players may be asked to trial in another age group. Players will only be selected to play in one team.

Selections are not finalised until after the 3rd round in each season. This allows coaches to make adjustments if necessary to accommodate the needs of the team.

New and existing players are invited to trial each season. New players are always welcome.

Awards and Presentations

The home and away season for juniors culminates in a Presentation Night where all awards are presented.


All players must have a current Barwon Heads Football and Netball club membership, have current VNA registration and 1 parent or guardian must also have current club membership.

Membership can be purchased online. VNA membership can also be purchased online through Netball Victoria.

Our coaches typically come from within the club and they are appointed by the committee after consideration of suitability for the role.
All junior coaches are mentored by the Coaching Mentor who liaises between all coaching personnel to ensure that our junior players are learning the most up-to-date aspects of the game.  Emphasis is on participation, team-work, development of skills and overall fitness – and of course, having fun.

All AFL Barwon coaches must be accredited.

Junior Development

We encourage the development of all of our juniors.

Talented juniors are identified and mentored by senior netballers and coaches in a Development Squad. The squad trains with the A and B squad and these players are gradually eased into senior netball – when they are ready.
